Originally recorded by Gene Autry. Autry, a singing cowboy, performed this number in the 1941 film The Singing Hill. Glenn Miller recorded a version that same year, but the number is undoubtedly most associated with Fats Domino, whose 1956 version made it to the top of the R&B charts.

I found my thrill, on Blueberry Hill
On Blueberry Hill, where I found you
The moon stood still, on Blueberry Hill
And lingered till, my dreams came true
The wind in the willow played
Love’s sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be
Tho’ we’re apart, you’re part of me still
For you were my thrill, on Blueberry Hill
